Murderer’s Song is based on the true story of a mother and son team and their involvement in the killing of an R.C.M.P. officer. Henricks interest in the subject arose from a brief childhood association he had with the killer, Andrew Kay. Divided into six sections, the video employs cut-up text derived from newspaper accounts and uses theatrical tableaus and original music to explore the passage of fact into folklore.
